""These are accounts of ordinary people who have striven through the harrowing experience of war and futile negotiation, searching for a life and a place that the rest of the world will respect and protect."" -- Jon Snow""Dina Matar's book presents fragments of memory: of self, people and a vanishing landscape from a lost past whose voices ring painfully in the present. This is a book of discovery, conviction and a labour of love that will appeal to a wide readership."" -- Yasir Suleiman, King's College, Cambridge
